APICULTURE NEW ZEALAND, CANTERBURY HUB 
 
ALL WELCOME TO EVENTS BUT ONLINE RESERVATION REQUIRED  https://apinzcanterbury.org.nz/
 
Our Canterbury Hub encompasses southern Marlborough, Canterbury, northern Otago, Westland and Chatham Island.  Our membership includes a diverse range of beekeeping operations, many hobbyists and occupations. 
 
Considering the mix of our membership and the area we encompass; much thought is put into meeting programmes.  We usually have five meetings a year with 25-50 attending, plus our main event the Beekeepers’ Day Out.     
 
BEEKEEPERS’ DAY OUT
IMPROVING BEE HEALTH & SUSTAINABLE HIVE PRODUCTION
PLUS, TRADE DISPLAYS
STEWART BUILDING, LINCOLN UNIVERSITY
 
This full day, over the last four years indicating great vibe, is excellent bang for your buck.  Currently our aim is 150 seats (if we go over 150 reasonably early, we are in the supa duppa wonderful position to adapt).  Feedback from last year’s event, indicates that 150 seats is highly feasible. Full day of approximately 16 speakers covering a variety of subjects, with much Q&A and discussion.  Speakers include hobbyist and commercial beekeepers, recognised scientific community, and reputable market sector.  There is something for everyone in this year’s programme. The information delivered by most speakers is transferable to hobbyist or commercial operations.   Programme and trade display space available late February.  Watch this space. 
 
Online attendee bookings: Open 7 March
 
Attendee Cost: $65 pp ApiNZ member (includes all Hub Club members), $75 pp Non ApiNZ members. Includes a.m. & p.m. teas & lunch

This event repeats every week on Tuesday forever


Spring has sprung, and my phone is ringing daily with enquiries from people wanting to learn about beekeeping, so it must be time to run our annual beginners course again.

Run over six weeks commencing 26 September, Tuesday evenings, 7-9pm, and we'll also fit in at least one apiary visit on a weekend as weather allows.

We'll cover everything you need to know to keep a beehive happy and healthy throughout the year, including hive style options, health and disease management, legalities, honey production and much more.

Whether you've already got a hive and just want to beef up or are just thinking about taking the plunge, come along and have some fun.

All hive types and methodologies/philosophies covered.... Theoretical, legal and practical.

Contact me (Deanna) to register - phone home evenings (06) 876 8852.

Registration required.

Cost: $50 per person/family.
